Salesforce Release Updates

Salesforce periodically releases updates that improve the performance, logic, and usability of Salesforce, but which can affect your existing customizations. When these updates become available, Salesforce lists them in Setup as Release Updates (formerly known as Critical Updates) and displays a message when administrators go to Setup.

To help keep you informed, we have created a master list of Salesforce Release Updates that also includes our recommendations for testing those within your sandbox environments prior to enabling those features in order to minimize risk. Based on our internal analysis, we have assigned each update with a testing priority of high, medium or low. We will update this support article prior to each major Salesforce release. 

Testing priority definitions


  • Low: Salesforce functionality change, might cause slight behavior changes in testing
  • Medium: Potential impact on Salesforce where functionality is being used in the org, may affect multiple processes, regression testing recommended
  • High: Org security impacts, major changes to org functionality, regression testing strongly recommended
